About Mark and Carole Watson
We are houseparents at Milton Hershey School and live with our elementary kids on campus most of the time. We love entertaining, so even though we won't be staying in our home when you are, we will be glad to try to make sure your stay is really pleasant!
Mark and Carole Watson purchased this House in 2013
Why Mark and Carole Watson chose Palmyra
We chose this property because of the big back yard for playing in. There is a 20 x 40 ft. in ground pool with a diving board to enjoy. There is a play set for younger kids and a sandbox :) We love sitting in the swing in the gazebo visiting with family and friends. There is a large deck and a lot of comfortable seating. The deck has afternoon shade and with the outdoor grill it is a fun place to share a meal.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy our home because if has a cozy family room with a gas fireplace. The downstairs area can easily have groups playing games or talking in different areas so everyone can do what they like. There is a ping pong table in the sun room and a pool table in the basement. So much to do! We like the 4 bedrooms so that there is plenty of sleeping space. We think it is an attractive place to come and relax.

If you’re planning a family trip to Hershey, rent this house!!!
What a lovely home! Warm, clean, and attractive, the great open layout allows a big family to spend quality time together without ever feeling cramped. You can play in one of two game rooms, or if weather permits, swim in the beautiful pool, or simply enjoy coffee outside on the swing in the gazebo. And should you ever feel the need for a bit of privacy, there are plenty of comfortable rooms to escape to,
Carole and Mark were positively wonderful to deal with, and thought of everything to make our family’s stay a pleasant one, from the fully-equipped kitchen, pool table, ping-pong table, piano, extra pillows, Legos, and even various sundries that might have been forgotten at home. Unfortunately, during our stay, the weather was unseasonably frigid one day with heavy downpours the next. Still, with such close proximity to all of the attractions in the area, it was easy to visit Hersheypark, the Tanger Outlets, a brewery, or a restaurant for a few short hours, then stop at the supermarket, come home and cozy up around a quickly-lit gas fireplace with cookies and hot chocolate. This was such a perfect weekend getaway! Thank you again, Carole and Mark for sharing your beautiful home with us! We hope to be able to return again next year!
Immaculate, spacious, great for families
We had a fantastic stay last weekend for the Hershey Half Marathon! The hosts were wonderful and accommodating of our request for a late checkout after the race. The house was incredibly clean with tons of space for the kids to play and parents to relax. I agree with a previous reviewer that the swing set was not in good condition for play, but the backyard was perfect for kicking a ball around instead. We hope to return in the summer to enjoy the pool! Thanks so much!
Wonderful big home well equipped with everything!
We had a great stay and loved this beautiful home! Owners were super helpful and the home was big, clean, well appointed and just perfect for our group. Thank you!
This property was spacious, well-appointed and comfortable.
I rented this house for a weekend with my college roommates and we were all pleased with it. Each couple had a comfortable bedroom and there were plenty of living places throughout the house for us to get together. We went swimming in the pool the first night for several hours before it rained. The pool was not heated, but it was warm and very clean. We all brought food with us and there was a lot of storage in the kitchen for meals, with multiple places to eat. There were 6 of us, but plenty of room for more. Our weekend went fast, too fast to take advantage of all of the amenities, including the pool table and ping pong table. We had a concert to attend which took us away from the house, so we just didn’t have time there. One surprise for us was the location, it was much closer to Hershey than I realized and on a Main Street. We thought it would be more remotely located. We would not have brought so much food with us because the house was close enough to go out to restaurants. So, keep that in mind.
This was a nice home to rent and we would go back again. The hosts were wonderful, too. We highly recommend it!
Great getaway, close to Hershey
Our family had a wonderful time. The home was clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed to ping pong table and the pool. The swing set is more worn than appears in the pictures, so we didn’t allow our kids to use. But there were so many other great things at the home and in surrounding area to do. We’d recommend a stay at this home.
Beautiful home with welcoming host!
Our family loves this home and our hosts are warm, friendly and available. We couldn't be happier for this Sweet Escape!
